Tech Overview

Our system will consist of 2 individual “Simon’s” connected via Wi-Fi used to keep score and time between both players simultaneously.

Each Simon will be based on a piezoelectric surface, a unique surface that creates electricity when applying pressure to it. On this surface we will place colorful buttons that are meant to be pressed and will apply pressure on the piezoelectric surface along with an audio-visual feedback for the player.

The game itself will be managed using an Arduino chip that will be connected to the buttons and to speakers in order to produce sounds.

Main technological challenges:

1. Creating a significant amount of electricity and storing it
2. Connecting to the traffic light data center in order to time each game according to the length of the red light in each intersection (each traffic light has p to 12 different programs every day)
